Free Fall

Sunday my friend Patience called to talk. We started chatting about our plans for the upcoming week and she mentioned that she and her younger brother were going skydiving Saturday. I have always wanted to skydive but have never found anyone that wanted to go with me, so I quickly jumped at the chance (Get it? Jumped at the chance. Thank you, folks. I'll be here all week. Don't forget to tip your waitress.) and invited myself along.

So, Saturday, at 9:00 in the morning, we will be going to Skydive Houston to throw ourselves out of a plane. It'll be a tandem dive since I don't completely trust myself not to screw something up and end up as a grease spot on the ground.

I'm actually pretty psyched about this. It kind of makes me feel brave and cool. I really hope that I enjoy it!
